the 20th of December, the People for Fairness Coalition marched from
Luther Place Church to Freedom Plaza to remember 46 people who died on
the street or with a housing voucher they were unable to use. The march
included a casket in memory of the fallen.
Many of the marchers planned to spend the entire night at Freedom
Plaza, with plans for a morning action at the City Council followed by a
march to the New York Ave Presbyterian church.
The demands on the City Council and Mayor Bowser being made by this march and vigil are threefold:
1: Fully fund Permanent Supportive Housing.
2: Fully fund Homeward DC.
3: End discrimination against the homeless, making housing status a protected class under the DC Human Rights Act of 1977.
